Recording of Math vs. COVID-19 with Po-Shen Loh

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Wednesday, August 26, 2020.

Appropriate for ages 11 and up.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted daily life across the globe.  What does a biological phenomenon have to do with math?  Quite a lot, as it turns out.  One uniquely devastating characteristic of COVID-19 is that it transmits before symptoms appear.  To fight this, the concept of “contact tracing” has become part of common conversation, as a standard method of fighting contagious disease.  Mathematically, this is based on graph theory and probability.  Join Carnegie Mellon math professor Po-Shen Loh, creator of NOVID (a COVID-19 app capable of measuring distance with sub-meter accuracy), as he introduces ideas from these branches of math and discusses COVID-19 through a mathematical lens.

Po-Shen Loh is a math professor at Carnegie Mellon University, founder of the free personalized learning platform expii.com, and the national coach of the USA International Mathematical Olympiad team.
